Honorable Thievery and Grammar; Recent NetGalley Requests

It was almost one, but I just couldn't help myself. I feel like these are good picks, though, and definitely worth requesting. Both sound like a lot of fun and I can't wait to get a chance to read them. Not quite a young girl Robin Hood, but it's close enough to have caught my…

Boxes of Emotions and Hidden Libraries; Recent NetGalley Requests

I've only got two requests for today since I'm trying to cut back on them. Fortunately, there weren't very many that I was immensely interested in and so I'm excited about the smaller number of books. I even managed to get quite a few reviews written as well, which is exciting since that's helping out…

Mythology, Linguistics, Feminism, and a Hilarious Fantasy Retelling; Recent NetGalley Requests

Well, I have to laugh today because I've clearly requested far more books than I can handle and here I am again commentating on another batch of books that I've recently added to my request list on NetGalley. I have a problem, clearly, and not the slightest idea how to fix it. I suppose, in…

Science, Sorcery, And a Powerful Commentary on Racism; Recent NetGalley Requests

I probably requested more than I should have today, but on the bright—I guess?—side, one of them was denied this afternoon. I gotta give the publisher credit for timeliness. It’s been a fairly long day and I don’t fully feel as though I’ve really gotten nearly enough done. And where reading is concerned, I certainly…

Warriors and Samplers; Recent NetGalley Requests

Today's NetGalley requests are all heavily influenced by the covers, both of which were so eye-catchingly magnificent that there was really little chance at all of me not requesting them. They're both middle grade novels, both featuring powerful female characters, and I cannot wait to read them. Granted, I still have to wait for an…

Reproductive Rights; Recent NetGalley Requests

Speaking of abortion, earlier today I actually requested My Body, My Choice The Fight for Abortion Rights and was approved shortly after. I spent much of the day—what little wasn’t spent closely babysitting my newly neutered puppy (I feel like there’s a ridiculous irony here?)—reading it and I’m really impressed thus far. I’ve learned a lot…

Amazing Children and the Names We Give Them; Recent NetGalley Requests

And so this morning I managed to add two new books to my request list--which basically means I need to knock some off pretty quickly because the number is a bit ridiculous at this point. But, as always, I couldn't help myself. Honestly, though, I'm really looking forward to these two, obviously for very different…

Science-y Children’s Book Retellings; Recent NetGalley Requests

I requested exactly one book from NetGalley today and I am dying for it. It's so insane for me to be this excited about a children's book, but I tell you I am so here for Chris Ferrie's latest re-work of a popular children's book into something related to science, especially since it involves outer space. I loved Ferrie's Scientist, Scientist and I'm…
